Confederation of Independent Psychoanalytic Societies

Welcome to the Confederation of Independent Psychoanalytic Societies

The Confederation of Independent Psychoanalytic Societies (CIPS) is an organization of psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic societies, founded in 1992 to represent the interests of psychoanalysts belonging to independent component societies of the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA) in the United States. Membership in CIPS is open to all IPA-accredited societies in the United States, and to all members of the IPA who are not affiliated with CIPS through membership in a CIPS component society.
